people flying into the united states will face tough new security measures. the tsa saying enhanced screening will focus on people flying through countries of interest such as yemen, pakistan and nigeria. the enhanced techniques include full-body patdowns, body scans and thorough searches of carry-on luggage. >>> 2010, as we were saying, good morning to you earlier, it has turned out already fairly deadly for the united states and its allies in afghanistan. nato saying four u.s. service members died in a roadside bomb yesterday. a british soldier was killed in a separate explosion. last year was the bloodiest for coalition forces since the war in afghanistan started. 514 service members died. united states has started deploying 30,000 more troops to fight the taliban. >>> look at this image that we found hanging off a building in former president jimmy carter's hometown of plains, georgia. witnesses told affiliate walb it's an effigy of president obama with a rope around its neck. and one person says it had a sign with the president's name on it. the secret service is now investigat

association of police chiefs. we represent law enforcement throughout the united states. this is a critical issue, no matter what size your agency is. if you are a large agency like new york or if you are a one-man police department, the ability to share information and communicate that information in a timely fashion is critical to public safety. we support wholly the efforts to remove the d-block from the auction and to provide that for public safety. what we need to see is leadership, here in washington. you have heard or you will hear from the public safety people who say how important this is that we are able to communicate and not just law enforcement to law enforcement but law enforcement talking to fire services to emergency services people. everyone must be able to communicate. they must be able to talk and send data between each other and it's very important that the people in washington, our leaders and elected officials take a leadership position and provide us with the tools so we can make our communities at home safe. >> thank you, chief lane. i introduce chief bob hendricks.

task is to try to get a global perspective to the legislative agenda and the united states. this is only panel specifically focused on legislative agenda in any one country, so all the talk about change, it is changing. there is still something important about what happens to the united states and congress. when i lived in europe, europeans always used to ask, when do i get to vote in an american in elections? i used to say, that is fine with me. there are a number who might have a word or two to say about that. i do not imagine that will happen anytime soon, but did these you can vote on this panel. the framers would they invented the u.s. government envisioned the united states congress as the first branch of government, the places where all the issues and pressures and the man decided to come together and be resolved. that did not always work as efficiently as they wanted it to work, but it probably work the way they -- it worked as a crossroads to the political system. i do not know about you on this? and how you feel about your jobs, but when i covered this, and was on

we have 16 spy agencies in the united states, one brain is supposed to be operating them jointly and that is not the case and british government and mi-5 and not working effectively. why weren't these sent to the united states all-around a lot of questions coming from the british government. >> one more story that it hasn't gotten out there enough, john brennan, the counterterrorism advisor to the president, learned about an underwear bomb in october, a saudi arabian official told about the assassination attempt by a man in yemen with a bomb sewn into his underwear. he wanted them to know there was an underwear concept out there and our own failure to connect the dots. >> there were many, many missed flags and the new york daily news put them together and there's about seven of them. when you even just read one of them is a head flapper and when you put all seven together starting with the fact his application to renew his visa in britain was turned down because he put in a bogus university, they said this doesn't exist so we're not going to renew yours and made some rookie mista

"a string of republican victories has raised the stakes considerably for one of the fewer -- fewest 2010 holdouts. they will try to regain the maryland governorship, going up for that this year. in most likely will not announce until march. one of the races to watch. we got an e-mail from paul. "the gop is toast and they do not know. they will lose the senate seat in massachusetts and more in the next cycle and the only votes they will get are from those who have not followed what is happening in that vote along party lines. -- a party lines." lexington, ky. what do you think? caller: we have had some version of one-party rule fr
the united states should be there but the chinese or what ever could come in there. but fake with the closures and layoffs, more money should be thrown into our governments and our country first. that sounds selfish, i am sorry. i think there are many people, detroit, michigan, they have been really hit hard. in my city, there is a lot of foreclosures going on. i think that's terrible. that's all i have to say. host: we will go to the democrats learned from jacksonville, florida, good morning. will there be a long-term u.s. commitment to haiti? caller: yes, i think it will bid. these people are really suffering. that is all of the other caller to say that. we need to commit money to all these other terrorists in other countries, one of commitment to haiti? host: york city, on the independent life. caller: good morning, you have a great show. i would like to make an observation -about the condition of haiti. i am a professor and i was assigned to nasa for disaster in the united states. were a small atomic weapon to use. one thing we learn from katrina and learn from 9/11 and n
two days. for that matter, feel it anywhere in the lower united states, lower 48 that is, the weather pattern stopped. what have you today is likely what you're going to experience the next four, five days in a row because the weather pattern literally has come to a halt. we're going to see snow on and off the next 48 hours. 6 to 12 inches from bangor, maine, through burlington, portland, maine up to six inches. boston, we knocked you down a little bit. we are thinking three to sixt now it looks probably more or less two to four. the other big thing is the temperatures. i want to put this in perspective. this morning, fargfargo, north dakota h. a record low of 34 degrees. negative 34 is cold. to put it in perspective, if you put an icicle on your front porch, would you have to warm it up 66 degrees to melt that piece of ice. that's how cold it was in the morning plains. think of the movie "fargo" when you think about this. it hasn't improved with windchill warnings in duluth. you live in duluth, you're hardy. you're used to bad winters. you're seeing one today. even as far south as sa
possible attacks on the united states. and i really believe the president and attorney general holder really should rethink this. they should really rethink this rigid commitment to the criminal justice system. after all, this guy came from outside the country. what he was planning was an attack on america. this is a is war-like act. he should not be treated like a domestic criminal. >> larry: can you treat someone as a military combatant and then later try them criminally? >> you can do anything you want. the justice department could move him around in all different ways. the reality is in this particular case he should have been treated as an enemy combatant. after all, the president and the attorney general have authorized military tribunals. now, if you're going to have military tribunals and you're going to try some people in a military tribunal, somebody who comes to the united states with a bomb to blow up an airplane in one of our cities should be treated as a wartime criminal, not like a domestic criminal. and that may be an academic dispute for some people, but here's the di
and the reason he brought it to the attention of mr. brennan was because they felt that the united states was not paying enough attention to the country of yemen and the threats there. >> so much about the story that we continue to dissect this morning including how this particular underwear bomber should be tried. should he be an enemy combatant or tried in criminal courts. in criminal courts he is given rights afforded to all of us as u.s. citizens. it was debated with chris wallace on his sunday show. >> let me ask you specifically. after abdulmutallab got lawyered up, did he stop talking? >> i'm not going to address what he did before or after he was -- talked with his lawyer. we got information and we continued to have opportunities to do that. >> why not treat him? you certainly have the right. still have the right to treat him as an enemy combatant. why not do that. if he has more actionable intelligence about future attacks and you say there is a real possibility of that, doesn't the president have the responsibility to do everything legal he can to get that information? >> and th
the united states will do everything it can to help the earthquake victims in haiti. he spoke this morning just before beginning a meeting with democratic leaders to work out details on the final health care bill. the president promises an all-out rescue and humanitarian effort to help haiti in the wake of what he called a cruel and incomprehensible tragedy. >> i have directed my administration to respond with a swift, coordinated and aggressive effort to save lives. the people of haiti will have the full support of the united states in the urgent effort to rescue those trapped beneath the rubble and to deliver the humanitarian relief, the food, water and medicine, that haitians will need in the coming days. jon: major garrett is live the at white house for us now. what can you tell us about what the plans are, major? >> reporter: jon, the president has received three briefings on the earthquake, the most at -- first at seven, the second at 10:15, he goes on to the head of development, raj shah, the president in the remarks said he's the lead coordinator for the rescue andie leaf -- relief

in an operation off the coast of greece with the fbi and cia working together, flown back to the united states and put on trial. this notion of captures terrorists and putting them on trial has been long-standing policy that started ronald reagan and continued by george herbert walker bush and by bill clinton and george w. bush. >> is this partisan. >> yes, it's absolutely partisan. i was a he registered republican. now i'm a registered independent in florida, but i tell you this. this is not only unfair, it's untrue and what the republicans are doing is indespicable. to try to play this terrorism card against barack obama on this case is unfair, it's not right. now, what bothers me is the democrats have been no inept in fighting back on this. they have to go back and look at the facts. i'll give you a quick quote from jerry bremer, who is the president's first coordinator for counterterrorism set up in 1986. this is what he said in a speech in november of 1987 to the council of foreign relations in tam tampa, florida. he said terrorists are criminals, they commit criminal actions like murder,
